  1. Mix tahini, lemon juice, and salt in a bowl until smooth and well incorporated. Stir in warm water, 1 tablespoon at a time, to achieve a drizzling consistency. Adjust dressing with more salt or lemon juice as desired.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • To make a creamier dressing, you can add 1 to 2 tablespoons of vegan plant-based yogurt.
  • Using warm water instead of cold or room temperature water ensures the dressing is easier to stir and doesn't solidify.
